2 Yes, Thy warning voice is plain,

And we fain would keep it dulg:
He who is not born again,

Heart and life renewing truly,
Born of water and the Spirit,
Shall God's kingdom ne'er inherit.
3 Therefore hasten we to Thee;

Take the pledge we bring, Ó take it!
Let us here Thy glory see,

And in tender pity make it
Now Thy child, and leave it never,

Thine on earth and Thine forever.
4 Make it, Head, Thy member now;

Shepherd, take Thy lamb and feed it;
Prince of Peace, its peace be Thou;

Way of life, to heaven, O lead it:
Vine, this branch may nothing sever,
Grafted firm in Thee for ever.
5 Now upon Thy heart it lies,

What our hearts so dearly treasure;
Heavenward lead our burdened sighs,

Pour Thy blessing without measure;
Write the name we now have given,
Write it in the book of heaven.

2 O Lamb of God most holy

Who on the cross didst suffer,
And patient still and lowly,

Thyself to scorn didst offer;
Our sins by Thee were taken,
Or hope had us forsaken:

Have mercy on us, O Jesus!
3 O Lamb of God most holy!

Who on the cross didst suffer,
And patient still and lowly,

Thyself to scorn didst offer;
Our sins by Thee were taken,
Or hope had us forsaken:
Thy peace be with us, o Jesus!

2 My Lord, Thou here hast led me

Within Thy holiest place, And there Thyself hast fed me

With treasures of Thy grace: And Thou hast freely given,

What earth could never buy,The bread of life from heaven,

That now I shall not die. 3 Thou gav'st the food I wanted,

Its power can death destroy; And Thou hast freely granted

The cup of endless joy.

Ah, Lord, I do not merit

The favor Thou hast shown, And all my soul and spirit

Bow down before Thy throne. 4 Lord, grant me that, thus strengthened

With heavenly food, while here
My course on earth is lengthened,

I serve with holy fear:
And when Thou call'st my spirit

To leave this world below,
I enter, through Thy merit,
Where joys unmingled flow.
